Thanks and help on ID

Thanks to all for submitting sightings over the last few days – it’s great to hear about the numbers of snipe and other wildlife on the reserve, as well as seeing the photo of the linnets (I hadn’t realised how different the males and females are).

I’ve been asked by Carole Martin (creator of the FA calendar, as well as provider of many super photos) if she can get a positive ID on this bird (click the image to see a larger version):

Enjoying winter sun

Have got my theory, but don’t want to display any ignorance. Many thanks!

Heard a pheasant near the log circle in the Orchard yesterday morning, and a woodpecker.

    Interesting about the peregrine, I saw one perched in the trees along the canal near Haverbreaks the other day. The crows were not happy. Not close enough to Flora to claim a spot in the nature reserve though.
